An excellent opportunity to acquire a house with gite in the village of Épenede, just outside Confolens in the Charente, Nouvelle Aquitaine.

Situated in the village of Épenede and just 15 minutes’ drive to either Confolens or Champagne Mouton, this is an exceptional opportunity to acquire a great family home and an income generating gite; together with outbuildings that have already been partly converted into more living space.

Confolens is a town nestled on the banks of the Vienne, with shops, supermarkets, bar and restaurants as well as a yearly music festival which has been staged there for well over 50 years.

The international airports at Limoges and Poitiers have daily flights to several UK destinations and they are only 46 minutes and one hour 20 minutes away respectively.

Limoges and Poitiers also have rail links; the latter providing cross platform TGV connections to Paris, Bordeaux and other French cities plus Brussels and London (via Lille).

The house has, mains water, electricity and drainage. It has electric remote-controlled central heating (each room individually controlled via internet) and an insert wood burning fire in the kitchen/dining room and a wood burner stove in the lounge. The enclosed garden is to the back of the house and there is a public well 25m outside the garden.
